I’ll always make room on my calender for an invitation to the MET. I recently enjoyed a preview of the work by the very talented Pablo Bronstein. Many of his lovely renderings on paper depict fanciful mythological scenarios using the MET as a muse. Bronstein professes a love for ” theatrical excess,” and this is quality is liberally infused throughout – whether it be in his monumental works devoted to the museum’s facade or in a grand picture of the Temple of Dendur. Bronstein also admits to a “completely unabashed love for the Baroque,” and has used the Baroque aesthetic in his fight against modernity. A truly romantic quest indeed!

The Museum Nearing Completion - 2009 by Pablo Bronstein.

I think it is particularly remarkable that Bronstein is only in his early 30’s – how fabulous to be recognized at such a young age by a prestigious museum! Do stop by and celebrate Bronstein’s success and enjoy this beautiful exhibition. Oh, and and should you want to receive invitations to similar exclusive previews, why not consider a membership at the MET!

On an exceptionally cold and dreary day I managed to pull together a respectable ensemble thanks to my super chic Le Chameau Chasseur boots (this gorgeous olive color works so well with a myriad of color combinations). I’ve paired these with my Gucci tweed check overcoat in shades of olive, dark green, rusty orange and brown, a camel silk/cotton ribbed turtle neck and brown tweed motorcycle pants both by Gucci, brown suede gloves by Sermoneta.
